Golf injuries: More common than we all think

Golf Injuries: More Common Than We All Think
Golf injuries are common but avoidable. Although golf is a low-impact sport, it's associated with a significant number of injuries. Many golfing-related injuries are a result of poor mechanics or overuse. The most commonly injured area is the lower back, followed by the elbow, wrist and hand, and shoulder.

The entire body is used to execute a golf swing in a complex and coordinated movement. When this movement is repeated frequently, significant stress is placed on the same muscles, tendons and joints. Over time, this can result in injury. Understanding the mechanics behind your golf swing can help you prevent golf injuries. Try to use proper posture, stay smooth, and don’t over swing.

Experts agree golfers should also warm up, stretch, start slowly, strengthen muscles, focus on flexibility, build up endurance, carry your clubs properly and wear the correct sports golf shoes.
